Hmmm, originally I'd have said Leipheimer but I think he really wants the TDF this year so he might not go all out. (And he said he's not going to be in top form because he wants to peak for the TDF)

Maybe Valverde? Pereiro?

For the prologue, maybe Boonen or Zabriskie?

Yeah, not sure Leipheimer's gonna win the TDF. I mean, anything's possible and he'll have the strongest team he's ever had and a great tactician, and a number of strong contenders have obviously been removed but he's never really shown that he has the potential to take it all..
